BY BBC NEWS,JOHN WERU,10TH JULY 2017-The Anglican Chaplain for Uganda’s Parliament has been advising Christians who give their regular offering in shillings (the local currency) to use dollars and pounds as well, the privately owned Daily Monitor newspaper  has  reported.

Rev Canon Christine Shimanya said this during a sermon at Namugongo Martyrs Church, just outside the capital, Kampala, on Sunday:

”Some Christians have dollars and pounds earned from international conferences; instead they change the money to shillings before bringing it to church as offertory. Bring those dollars and pounds, God needs them.”

Another clergyman, Canon Henry Ssegawa, has come out in support of Rev Shimanya call, saying the church needs money with higher purchasing power, the Daily Monitor reports.
